Compassionate and Responsive Education Services (CARES)

With funding from the Delaware Department of Education, Project Compassionate and Response Education Services (CARES) is collaborative project where CTECC is partnering with a local school district, to implement and evaluate  group-based trauma-focused services in a school setting.   Activities associated with this project include: educating staff and families about trauma, identifying eligible students (i.e., those exposed to trauma and who report post-traumatic stress symptoms), connecting youth to school-based and community services, administering an evidenced-informed, trauma-focused treatment, and evaluating the feasibility and success of the program.
